An Australian hotel banned two emus. The two banned emus are brother and sister. The hotel banned them because of bad behaviour. The birds went to the hotel for biscuits and toast. Hotel guests were not happy. The owner put rope across the stairs to keep the birds out.

The two emus learned to climb the stairs. They went up to bedrooms and shocked guests. If guests have a barbecue, the birds could take everything. The owner said people should not get between an emu and its food because they have very sharp beaks." He warned guests that emus' toilet habits can be messy.
